Week Commencing Monday 23rd Dec
Single of the week OUT NOW
If you love Jason Derulo’s voice and the sound of trumpets this is perfect for you.
Although lyrically this song isn’t at its best it will capture you with its cleverly crafted trumpet symphonies that get into your head on first listen. Trumpets is the 4th single from his No1 album Tattoos but nothing beats the lead single Talk Dirty feat 2 chainz.
Album of the week OUT NOW
Dropped in both the US and UK this week album of the week is Ingleworld by Skeme, who is under the same label as Kendrick Lemar. The album features hip hop guests Nipsey Hussle, K Roosevelt, Dom Kennedy, Wale and the only female to the cut Miss Iggy Azalea.
Taking a sense of pride in where he is from Ingleworld is a 15 track album about real life on the West Coast of California. Lyrically Skeme calls himself the ‘duke’ of rap and claims he isn’t here to outshine his competitors such as Rap God Eminem but nevertheless he’s one to watch. Skeme’s videos are already in motion with Wale’s collaboration snippet already filmed in NYC but if it’s Iggy Azalea’s feature you are after you will need to check back early 2014.
Video of the week: OUT NOW
A whopping 17 epic videos from Beyoncé surprised the nation last week made it impossible to pick a favourite!
Instead this week’s video of the week is from 19 year old London Lass Laurel. Fire Breather dropped last month as a free download and it has been on our minds ever since. This dark pop song is about the young love of her destructive partner. Loved-up bliss doesn’t last for long as Laurel’s partner gets mixed up in the wrong crowd.
Leaving her with more bad luck than just a tarot card, will this tattooed beau make it safe for them to stay or will they have to up sticks and leave their trailer park home for good?
